Most plumbers would come into your home if you are experiencing clogged drains or odd smells, or a backed-up toilet, and the first thing that they do after they flush the toilet or run the sink is to jam a plumbing snake down the drain and work it through the pipes. After all, wouldn’t these symptoms mean that you have a clog somewhere in the line?
It could, but it could also mean that there is a different problem potentially brewing. Corrosion occurs in all sewer lines through the natural course of time. No matter what kind of material is used, it is something that everyone will have to deal with. Sometimes a line is accidentally punctured by a drill or saw blade during renovation or construction. Sometimes a PVC pipe is crimped, restricting water flow and other matter through the line.
By calling a plumber in to clear the problem, they could spend hours at your house, ringing up an impressive bill for you before finally opening the line, but you will likely have to call on them again in a few months or so when the problem worsens.
Fort Lauderdale Pipe video inspection gets to the bottom of the problem and then some.
Instead of calling a traditional plumber next time you have an issue, call on our pipe video inspection service. Not only will our cameras find the exact source of the problem, but they will also record video of the surrounding pipe to determine if there is an underlying cause of the clog. It may sound costly, but pipe video inspection is much more affordable than you think.
Let’s put it this way if your clog is not in the drain catch of the sink or right there at the toilet. Then odds are there is something more going on than just a simple clog. Guessing the problem and freeing the clog is only one minor step to complete correction. You can certainly ignore it, but if the pipe integrity is compromised or damaged in any way, at some time in the future, you may find yourself repairing more than just a clogged line.
Get a Fort Lauderdale pipe video inspection and know that your sewer line is safe and secure. Your home, and your wallet, will thank you.
